Day 15: Happy Thoughts

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Writing has always seemed to be my outlet of choice - it’s just how I make the best sense of the world around me.  I have been a journaler on and off for years and enjoy sitting down on certain days to peruse my past. 

I am lucky enough to have a kept a journal quite avidly throughout the beginning of my current relationship and feel very blessed to have that insight into the past as personal and historical reference for love.

So, when it came to starting a business of my own, what better way to go about it, than writing it all down.  Now, I can’t take all the credit for this action - I was absolutely inspired by my good friend Mishka to put pen to paper, when I saw her good vibes book, the place where she kept all her,well, good vibes.  But, I have to say that to keep a book of my own has already been incredibly rewarding.

My Business Book is where I put all of my happy thoughts, quotes that inspire me, notes, pertinent information, SMART goals (more on that tomorrow) and progress.  I have 24 pages dedicated to each month of the 2012 calendar for updates that month, and one section for a yearly write up.  I have written out my 1 year, 5 year, 10 year and life goals there too, just for posterity sake.  In the moment it felt like the right thing to do and made me feel like I was getting myself organized which I like and need.

Years from now I hope that I’ll be able to look back on this volume of work and still remember all of the great moments, inspiration, laughter and experiences that forced me to grow.

So for now here’s what’s putting a smile on my face :D
